        Firefighters have black shields. Officers have white shields. Cheifs have painted shields.

                  interesting im noticeing most departments use helmet color to show who the explorers are when i was an explorer from 2001-2006 all we had to diffrentiate us from the actual firefighters was the old black gear from the mid-early 90s and a bright orange vest that said explorers

                    What seperates a Senior Firefighter from a regular Firefighter?

                              Senior firefighter functions at roughly the rank of LT.

                              They are assigned to a particulate apparatus and are responsible for checking it weekly, as well as the tools, and taking care of minor maintainence issues such as blown lights.

                              On the fireground they are assigned as team/crew leaders, sector officers, safety/staging officers and function as IC in the absence of a chief officer or captain.
                              Train to fight the fires you fight.
